My mother often took this comforting side dish to social dinners because it was such a hit. Now I get the same compliments when I make it. Bacon and onion jazz up a creamy mixture that’s quick and easy to make thanks to convenient frozen hash browns and canned soups. —Donna Downes, Las Vegas, Nevada

"I've made this recipe several times for barn potlucks, but I prefer to lighten it up a little. I use one bag of the potatoes with peppers and onions, low fat soups, butter and sour cream, leave out the bacon and reduce the sour cream to 1 cup. It's still very tasty and a far cry from healthy but at least I can eat it without crying lol"

"I make a few adjustments to this recipe to suit my tastes. I only use 1 lb of 'shredded' hash browns and I do not use as much bacon that is called for in the recipe. I make this anytime we go to a family get together or a church function and I never have leftovers. :)"

"I often sub ham for the bacon - also use "real" American cheese & about 1 Tbsp. instant minced onion (the fresh doesn't seem to cook enough for my taste....)"

"I made this for the monthly church potluck and it was a big hit. There was none left. Will definitely make this again - with a little less onion."
